INEC Seeks Review Of Inspection Order Granted Atiku, Obi By Election Tribunal

The Independent National Electoral Commission,INEC, has asked the Presidential Election Petition Court to vary the orders that were granted to the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar

and the Labour Party, LP, Mr Peter Obi to inspect materials used for the last presidential election.

In a motion on notice filed last Friday, INEC is praying the court to vary the order which restrained it from tampering with materials used for the election.

The commission said it needed to reconfigure the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) for the next round of elections.

Last Thursday, the appellate court granted leave to Atiku and Obi to inspect election materials used by INEC to conduct the 25 February presidential election.

The court granted the duo permission, following two separate ex parte applications filed by Atiku and Obi, who came second and third respectively in the presidential election won by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress.

In the  application filed by the commission and sighted by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the commission is asking the court to vary the order to allow it to reconfigure its BVAS for the March 11 governorship and state houses of assembly elections.
